Must all visual artists be public performers?

It was never enough to simply make things and wait for the public to show up and love it, but more and more it seems that creative people need to get out in front to promote their work.

This “performance” aspect can be daunting to many in the creative arts. Illustration, design, and coding are often solitary efforts, attracting the introverted or shy. So what can we learn from artists in more performance-based media about how to get out in front of our work?

On this episode of the +Lean Into Art Cast we're joined by +Lee Cherolis of the +Little Guardians webcomic, and +Samantha Kyle, designer and illustrator. Samantha and Lee are also members of rock band The Shake Ups in Ponyville (http://theshakeups.net/). Together we'll pick apart how things change for a visual artist once they begin thinking of themselves as a performance artist.

Stop the chummy chit-chat!

Sapph-Fire's trying to make her mark as a legendary villain, but her teammates can't seem to spin up to her speed!

Do you chance upon the perfect shot or hunt for it?

+Peter Baker shared a lot of terrific insights on his approach to photography that can be easily applied to any form of visual storytelling. The video version of this discussion is best, but you can also check out the audio podcast by using the link above.

Talking about finding the help we need on the LIA Cast!

The whole topic of “asking for help” is a force that shapes us as artists. Some things we find comfortable to ask for help, others not so much.

How can you do your art (music, comics, podcast, photography, making video games) and make a living?

Let’s explore barriers to asking, needs for asking, and examples from the last almost 4 years (it’ll be 4 years in August) of Lean Into Art.

Talking about preparing for projects on the LIA Cast!

Creating something to express a narrative can often feel like embarking on a dungeon crawl. You might have a general idea of where you’re headed--maybe you even have a map that some older, wiser person gave you. But it’s not until you’re on the journey that the narrative part of your project begins to take shape. In the dungeon there is little to aid you beyond what you’ve brought, and unknown terrors hide in every shadow. But if you persevere and survive, there’s often some pretty awesome stuff at the end of that dungeon!

So how much do you prepare for these journeys? Are you strategic and tactical, prepared for every eventuality, or do you like to pack light and improvise?

We'll be joined by film maker and writer +Kohl Glass who will help us discover how we might pack better for our narrative project journeys.

Story

Cartoonist and teaching artist.
Introduction
As a cartoonist, I've worked for publishers and self-published my own comics stories. Here's a list of some things I'm known for:


I also work as a freelance illustrator (here's my portfolio). Some of my past clients include:
  • Marvel Comics
  • The Arizona Department of Tourism
  • The Arizona Nutrition Network
  • Wachovia Bank
  • Brain Age games for Nintendo

I'm a teaching artist as well, which is one of my favorite jobs. I teach comics classes and lead presentations on comics year-round in the southeast Michigan area and beyond. Here are some of the places at which I've led classes or presentations:

I co-organize the annual Kids Read Comics Celebration, a free comics event that offers a family-friendly artist alley, drawing demos, and free hands-on workshops for kids and adults.

Lastly, I'm known for creating audio and video shows about comics. I host a weekly show recorded live at the Ann Arbor District Library called Comics Are Great! along with many other shows available on my website.
